Despite the obvious shoddiness and overall uninspired scripts we've seen, replete with sad, poor imitations of our snappy selves in gutterball roles, there were one or two we found amusing. If only the production companies would have come forward and asked us for help or permission or even a piece of the action for the use of our likenesses, we might have given our blessing. (Doubtful but ... you know ...)
Alternatively we found it necessary to sic our legal representation after them, The Law Offices of Poon, headed by our go-to buddy and confidant Chung S. Poon, advisor extraordinaire.
Our pal, Chung S. Poon
(To date, and because of Mr. Poon's legal wrangling, we've seized the ideas for those few that have potential. Developed properly, they could see the light of day ... but under our watchful eyes only.)
Clark said it Monday: Television had a very specific cycle back in the day. Now? Not so much. But put a couple spiffy ideas out there featuring The Unbelievables - not recycled, reconstituted drivel but thoughtful, interesting, engaging sitcoms or dramas or the like - and television could be brought back to its glory days of old.
Instead? Well ... you've seen some of the examples earlier this week. To wrap up the week, I'm offering a couple more which necessitated cease and desist letters. A few even went so far as to interest a couple prominent production studios which, in turn, ordered pilots. (Don't ask which ones. Let your mind go wild.)
"Frank" ... ??? Who's Frank?
Uhmmm ... no.
The bi-line on this one?
"And how to get around those pesky child labor laws."
The original title on this one was
"Look! Up In The Sky! Stargazing with 3 Guys Somewhere in Nevada"
Guess they wanted to go with the more straightforward title ...
This one was supposed to be a one hour after-school special one-shot.
Almost makes you want to give up television all together ... doesn't it?
Still ... that Unbelievababes one Jeff mentioned doesn't sound too shabby ...
